ATEC’s Singapore office is on a roll: they’re celebrating their 100th safety training class, a milestone in their movement to build safer workplaces. Since opening their doors 5 years ago, ATEC’s Singapore office has been running their CompEx course to teach quality and safety to the people working in high-risk environments.
In 1988, the world’s deadliest offshore oil disaster, the Piper Alpha explosion, killed 167 people. This devastating event led the founders of ATEC to assess what changes needed to be made for workers in explosive atmospheres. CompEx, a training course prioritizing safety and competency, was created to ensure safety would come first with any job.
In April of 2013, the first ever CompEx 01-04 class was held in Singapore. Now, a little over five years later, ATEC is proud to celebrate the completion of its 100th CompEx 01-04 class. The need for standard safety training is vital, and the increased demand for certified personnel has only improved our program over the years.
The ATEC location in Singapore has recently moved into a larger, state of the art premises, capable of serving more students. And, as the globally recognized ATEC Training Academy, it has expanded their delivery to fixed training centers in the following locations:
To make the certification process even more accessible, exams are now administered online and assessments are conducted via iPad or smart device.
Upon completion of the course, participants now receive personalized identity cards to distinguish their achievement.
